Hi Jay,

It is very normal for your ice to be cracking. I guess you have solid ice?

The cracking happens because of the difference in temperature between ice and water. Cracking occurs due to either the expanding or shrinking of the outer later of ice relative to its inner core. This is called thermal stress or thermal shock.

Once the water freezes the cracks should disappear.

Hope it helps!
